Balmoral for Families

Editor Rating
Families
2.0
There were no families on our cruise, which was during school term time, but Balmoral does welcome families. Although there are no designated areas for children or teens, there is a member of the entertainment staff to organise activities like treasure hunts. There are some family cabins, with third and fourth bunk-style beds, folded away when not in use.
